Cannon Falls Fun Fest: Pop Up Museum: Whats Your Family History?

July 12 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

July 12, 5 – 7 PM

A Pop Up Museum is a temporary exhibit created by the people who show up to participate. On July 12, bring in an object and story related to “Family” and share it with your neighbors at Cannon Falls Fun Fest! Everyone (especially you) is invited to bring an object related to “Family” to share.

We encourage you to bring an easily portable object or image that represents what “Family” means to you. When you arrive, you will write your own label to accompany the item you brought to share with your neighbors. We cannot wait to hear your story.

Please remember that Pop Up Museums are public events and people may want to handle your item. The Goodhue County Historical Society and Cannon Falls Chamber of Commerce are not responsible for your items. You bring your item in, share your story, and take it home when you leave Cannon Falls Fun Fest.

What’s the point? Pop Up Museums focus on recent history – your history. We want to come to where you are to learn about you, the citizens of Goodhue County. Our hope is that people in the community will use Pop Up Museums to come together to engage in conversation through stories, objects, and photographs. Pop Up Museums allow participants to make meaningful connects with others and find commonalities with people across all walks of life. All of you are part of the Goodhue County story and we believe your stories should not only be shared, but celebrated!
